This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Wedluxe Show 2013 as media. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet new vendors and show you, my readers, some wedding inspiration with some WOW factor. In case you missed it, I’ve put together this Wedluxe Show Part 1 of 2 blog post, just for you.
The annual Wedluxe Show features some of the industry’s most luxurious and coveted vendors. There were some high-end and high quality vendors that I’ve worked with in the past and then there were some super high-end vendors (one florist I spoke to starts her fees at $200,000…!?). There was definitely eye candy out the wazoo! It was quite the experience seeing it all in one place, so I’ve broken this post down into two parts. This first part will feature some ways to accessorize your wedding from vendors that stood out and made an impression. The second post will focus on invitations and decadent cakes.
Wedluxe made a great first impression with the floral canopy from the newly formed Sterling-Kjargaard Flora, a partnership of Todd Kjargaard’s ‘Jackie O’ and Gisele Sterling’s ‘Nous Design Group’. The Wedluxe booth also made quite a statement with a gorgeous floral tree, set in the middle of the room.
The Oh So Coco Swag Suite allowed guests to pick out their complimentary gifts. My picks included a beautiful Palettera card, OPI nail polish and a delicious Two Enjoy cookie favour.
I bumped into my friends at Fete Boutique who created this stunning peacock floral sculpture. Gorgeous right?? She’s a florist with some great artistic flavour!
Another floral table setting that I loved was this colourful centerpiece with the soft gradient from Dizennio Floral. This would be beautiful for a wedding with long banquet tables.
Elsa Corsi’s collection of jewellery was stunning, I especially loved the bracelets! Both well-made (vintage quality) and sparkling with character (Swarovski encrusted), perfect for a bride looking for high quality bling.
I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Blair Nadeau and previewing her new collection of fascinators. Aren’t they lovely? They would make quite a statement and would make for fabulous wedding photos!
Rounding up these highlights of ways to accessorize your wedding is one way to give some wow factor to your dance floor. My friends at Impact DJ showcased their new see-through light up DJ table. Because it is see-through, guests can see the DJ’s every move from the dance floor. It’s so slick!
That’s it for this Part 1. Stay tuned for the second part to this post about luxury invitations and jaw-dropping cakes!
